How apropos. I just came back from "vacation", which was really more like a trip. Every 4th of July, we head with my in-laws to the Finger Lakes. I love the area, but having an almost-3 year old makes it a little less fun, and cramming in 6 adults and 1 toddler into a small, very rustic (to put it diplomatically) cabin with 1 bathroom makes it a lot less fun. My SIL's husband is kind of
Very nice guy, but I'm really ambivalent about him. Oh, also, while we were gone, we decided to have our second floor floors refinished. So we pulled up the disgusting ratty carpet that was there before, and the night before we left, we took apart all the furniture, moved all of the stuff out of our closets, and brought it downstairs. It was a MASSIVE pain in the ass. So knowing that putting all of that shit back in its place when we returned from a 5 hour drive was also weighing on me the entire time. Spoiler alert: putting it all back sucked just as much.
Also, I had a shitload of work emails that never stopped. I spent about an hour every morning cleaning out by inbox (but limited to that) because ignoring it actually stresses me out more.
I didn't run at all while I was away, but did a lot of swimming and walking. It's super hilly there, so walking was pretty tough. Today, I ran 4 miles. I am on this thing where I run from my house, down a screaming steep hill into Manayunk (for those PHL people). I run on the Main Street for a bit, then turn around, and walk up the big hill home. I am just about to go buy lunch in our cafeteria, which is hosting a Game of Thrones-themed lunch. Essentially, it's the same crap as usual, but with "Dothraki-spiced" thrown in front. I might get the "Iron Born Fish Stew in a Bread Bowl"
This is one of the 'benefits'? of working at a big cable company -- themed lunches.
Bonus: My husband, and between that and weed-whacking, it takes a crapload of time (2+ hours). Once we can afford it, we plan to outsource it. It's a lot of time spent away from the family during the precious weekend daytime hours.
